About this Book

Provides an overview of the family of polyester polymers which comprise an important group of plastics that span the range of commodity polymers to engineering resins. It describes the preparation, properties and applications of polyesters. Readers will also find details on polyester-based elastomers, biodegradable aliphatic polyester, liquid crystal polyesters and unsaturated polyesters for glass-reinforced composites.

  • Presents an overview of the most recent developments.
  • Explores synthesis, catalysts, processes, properties and applications.
  • Looks at emerging polyester materials as well as existing ones.
  • Written by foremost experts from both academia and industry, ensuring that both fundamentals and practical applications are covered.
